There are several outstanding players on the Indian cricket team’s current pacers corps. While Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are now the team’s most senior players, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh, and Umran Malik are quickly moving up the ranks as well. Dinesh Karthik was questioned on the “toughest” player. Having competed in the nets, Shami came out on top. In addition, Kathik described encountering Shami in the nets as a form of “torture.”
Karthik also disclosed that other players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma didn’t want to face Shami in the nets during the “Rise of New India” event on Cricbuzz.
“The closest term I can think of to characterise Shami is torture.” He is the hardest bowler I have ever faced in the nets in my whole career, and he also got me out a few occasions during the game. But he hasn’t been a pleasant player in the nets. I believed I was the only person. I then questioned legends of the game Kohli and Rohit, and they all stated they detested playing Shami “said he.
Looking at Shami’s “strengths,” Karthik discovered that the seasoned pacer always bowls in the nets with all of his strength.
“His upright seam posture, natural length, and unpleasant length of 6 to 8 metres, where the two main modes of dismissal are caught behind or caught at slip, are all strengths that come into play during net practise. Additionally, you can understand why he has had bad luck over time because the length indicates that he consistently beats the batter without ever taking the wicket. He has participated in international tournaments where he has consistently been the poor bowler since he is the bowler who has the most deliveries beaten but never the number of wickets to show for it, according to the wicket-keeper batter.
“When a fast bowler releases the ball, the revs are close to 1000, whereas Shami’s are closer to 1500–1600. He is unique because of that. He continued in the video by stressing what makes Shami different from the other bowlers: “And you have that level of backspin, when there is little bit of the wicket, he is basically unplayable.
